The F-35 Lightning II accomplished the first weapon separation test yesterday (August 8, 2012) on a test flight over the Atlantic test range.
The F-35 testing program is rapidly progressing toward the weapon testing milestone, which will be significant in validating the new fighter's combat capabilities for the first time. Among the testing were pit drops conducted at Pax River, and external carriage flights which included aerial refueling for the first time.
